Dr. Sidney Strauss: Professor (Emeritus), Branco Weiss Chair for Research in Child Development and Education, Tel Aviv University, spent over a week in India with AMMACHI Labs team members.
He visited Kodur Village, Andhra Pradesh and interacted with students from the tuition center, the tailoring center and the computer center.
